Question about Ultima wiring harness

I have the Ultima wiring harness part no. 18-533. On the schematic, it shows an aux power wire which doesnt show connecting to anything. Im assuming it goes to the pos side of the battery, but want to check with you guys before I do something stupid! Is that where it goes?

no... I believe that wire is hot... just a power wire for any accessories you might have...

I would check it with a test light once you get a battery hooked up. If its an Aux power and is indeed hot be careful just leaving it disconnected. I am Not sure how the Midwest harness comes but if it has a end on it you might snip it off and heat shrink it to insure it doesnt short out by touching something when you are riding or better yet if its a 12v hot wire to nowhere just get rid of as much of it as possible to eliminate future probems. You can always extend it later if you decide you need it.

If you have nothing else you need to power up, just leave it. It is an extra power feed. You are not running a radio or cig lighter?

Thanks for the input. I do plan on covering up that end, just wanted to make sure I didnt need the wire. Actually, right after I posted this question, I saw on the schematic where the power comes off the battery. I was actually thinking about the cig lighter though.

I know this is my first post but need some help bad. This forum seems to be the only forum that has even talked about the ultima 18-533 wiring harness. I have things hooked up (2000 883 sportster) and decided to check the blinkers and I can't stop them from hazard flashing. I hit left side and both flash, I hit the right side and both flash. Thinking it was a short i disconnected the left (font switch) and still it happens, then the right and still????? ???? Bad unit? Shorting some where?
Thanks a lot

ultima 18-346

According to Ultima web site, that harness is for 1985 and later FX Harley.
I have '82 FX Low Rider, and just got my ultima harness.
The 12 pin on mine is in the back of the headlight (Sportster type) housing to connect the main harness to the switches, lights, indicators and such. One side of the connector clips on the inside (that's what the extra wires and pins are for) get out your soldering iron and shrink wrap. The pre-wired section plugs in from the out side.
If you don't have a Sportster style headlight, you can either cut the wires from the plug and solder them directly (not recommended) or find a good place to hide it where you can get to it when you need to work on things.
I'm still tearing things apart on mine. Making my own diagrams since my bike is an FXE converted to bat bobs and dash. I have to combine two different diagrams from my factory manual. Good luck.

P.S. If you don't have a factory service manual for your bike, drop EVERYthing and go buy one. There is no tool made that is worth more.

You only need an equalizer if you are running both incandescent bulbs and LED's.
Lights draw however much amps they need to operate. Voltage is constant.
Incandescent needs lots of amps compared to LED. Your LED's either wont work, will come on and not flash, or you can burn out the circuits.
